ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply o
unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and b
to talk what they strive to do is paint a contrast betwee them and the obama administration. the contra becom p thr posturg. hoare we going to approh foreign policy differently? the posture is that obama's foreign policy is lead from behind, i think mitt romney is really lean forward. we're trying to use our influence in the middle east to -- but really we're trying to use our influence in the region to get the outcomes we want in order to shape the policies that we want, in order to receive the outcomes that we want in the middle east. >> let's be honest, posturing is what we've got here. was his speech heavy on detail or light on detail? >> i'm stealing this from someone on twitter who said the difference between romney and obama on foreign policy is romney says speak louder but carry the same stick. sort of teddy roosevelt line. what's striking in the speech is overall the differences between romney and obama on foreign policy are not actually that great. it's about how do we deal with the syrian rebels and romney's more forthright but still hedging about whether we're going to arm t
numberes. today donald trump was the late test say the obama administration cooked the books. >> do you think they changed the numbers? >> i do, i do. and i think they did a lot of those -- a lot of monkey business. and i'm telling you, a month and a half from now, they will do a readjustment like has been happening for the last year and a half. they will do a readjustment and the number will be 8.2 or more. >> all right. >> of course last week it was former general electric chief jack welch, alan west and right wing pundits making the allegation. we should remind viewers what got them so siexcited. until a few days guy conservatives were claiming all of the national polls, saying, they must have been off. the latest gallup tracking poll shows president obama's lead widening to five points again. today president obama was shoring up the hispanic vote just days before voter registration deadlines in 11 states. the president dedicated a moment to caesar chavez. >> where there had once been despare, geez ared dis/* dispare, caesar gave people hope. whether it was bet are work conditions, t
administration all over again. especially when it comes to foreign policy. how's that sit with you? even obama adviser robert gibbs and newt "the gary radnich shgi anything to get elected. >> mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent mitt romney had a problem with being dishonest in the primary. my problem is with, was he dishonest when he said that. >> i think it is clear his position changed. >> the only path for the white house is for voters to pretend that changes never happen pepd get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. tonight's question, who do you trust when it comes to foreign policy decisions? text a for president obama. text b for mitt romney. we will bring you the results later on in the show. go to our blog and leave a comment as well. >>> joining me tonight is colonel lawrence wilkerson, former chief of staff at state department during general collin powell's term and currently the visiting professor at college of william and mary. colonel, good to have you with us tonight. we got a very -- >> good to be here, ed. >> you bet. you heard the speech today. what is
-aircraft and anti-armor. >> rose: that's a distinction from the obama administration according to the -- >> right. i think the nuclear weapons capability line with iran. that seems to be different because the president's always talked about we're not going to contain an iran with nuclear weapons. mr. romney seems to be saying we're not even prepared to get that close. obviously the devil's in the details. >> rose: so governor romney's red line may be earlier than president obama's red line. >> exactly right. i actually thought one other thing was interesting which is he talked about our relationship with most of the arab countries. the egypts and others, the libyas. what he essentially laid out was called a conditional foreign policy. essentially saying, look, the era where we gave aid to you all and you act as you see fit is over. we will continue to work with you but only so long as you meet us halfway, whether it's the way you treat women, girls and minorities, your foreign policy more broadly against israel and terrorism. i think that's an important statement and one that people in both parties
states" was a very interesting and important one. i think that the obama administration would say, look, if there was no daylight the israelis might well have taken military action by now and the u.s. would be sucked into it. the u.s. would have to join it. so there has been daylight, but the daylight in the obama administration's view has been intended to say to the israelis, "look, we're not at the point yet where they're about to get a bomb, there are other possibilities, including more sanctions and more sabotage." >> rose: prime minister netanyahu would welcome this speech? >> by and large yes. but there were some interesting statements that i'm not sure if the word would be "welcome." when governor romney talked about a two-state solution in the middle east and talked about a prosperous and secure independent palestinian state, that was interesting to me because given some of his previous comments people may have wondered whether he represented something of a departure and that to me was his way of saying look, i'm in the mainstream on important issues, i'm in the mainstream on th
what number the obama administration gets flashed up on a tv screen, they know they're out of work, and they wanted to see if they're comfortable with the challenger. not only were they comfortable, they'll keep being comfortable. the reason romney is going to keep doing very well in the debates is because you never get to see him. the media tells us, you know, gives us snippets, paraphrase, in other words what he was trying to say is. let's see what he said. >> sean: if you want to look at polls -- we're still 29 days out. four weeks in a campaign we all agree is an eternity, but pew, battleground, politico, rasmussen. it goes deeper than that. romney is up in florida in a poll, up in virginia in a poll. >> even in ohio. >> sean: dead even in ohio. it's a two-point race in pennsylvania. it's a two-point -- >> well -- >> sean: wait a minute. it's a one-point race in wisconsin. this now is putting obama in a position where he has to defend, defend, defend, defend, defend, at least, you know, six, seven states that he won back in 2008. >> this is all being carried on mitt romney's pe
in the muslim world from the war in syria and the obama administration shifting response to the deadly attack on the nebs b -- the embassy in benghazi. republican candidate suggesting he would take a harder line to make sure that tehran does not get a nuclear weapon. >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i'll not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of air cast carrier task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination for the sake of peace we must make clear to iran through actions, not just words, that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> despite his criticism that president obama has not slowed iran's nuclear ambition, mr. romney's plan isn't a lot different from that of the presidents. you can see here. the current administration has increased sanctions along with the western rorld and vowed to prev
, the obama administration faces new questions from lawmakers. fox's peter dosy has the latest. >> reporter: it's been 25 days since four americans were murdered in libya. the latest word from the defense secretary leon panet a the hunt is -- hunt is still on for people responsible. panetta said it's too soon to tell if two too indonesian men arrested in connection with the murders are al qaeda affiliated. >> and we're doing everything possible to make sure that we go after those who were involved in the attack in libya. >> reporter: five days after the deadly raid on the consulate in ben gauzy, the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan royce went on five sunday shows and said the attack may have been spontaneous and not necessarily trim, but she said at the time she, quote, relied squarely and solely on the information the intelligence community provided to her, information she said represented the intelligence community's best current assessment as of the date of her television appearances and that is not an acceptable explanation for republican senators mccain, ayotte, and ron johnson who sa
. and they have both talked about tougher sanctions. obama administration is moving, coordinating with the europeans on tougher sanctions against iran. even as it leaves the door open to diplomacy. i'm not sure what mitt romney can do to except escalate the military option that would differentiate, be that different than what the obama administration has done. >> we also hear that in this speech today he'll emphasize the solution of a two-state solution and when we saw that videotape of a fund-raiser earlier this year, he dismissed that. how important is that in the big picture of foreign policy? >> well, at the moment, the peace process is dead and both men also talk about a two-state solution so again i'm not sure that it's one that will really differentiate the candidates. but it is true that mitt romney has a much stronger relationship with the prime minister of israel and there's almost open hostility between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. >> it does seem that often in campaigns that we talk about the lack of foreign policy experience for many of these candidates and
? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe
, the republican nominee criticize the obama administration for allowing chavez to expand his influence in the region. >> and our neighbors want to resist the failed ideology of hugo chÁvez and the castro brothers and deepen ties with the united states on trade and energy and security, but in all these places, just as in the middle east, the question is asked -- where does america stand? >> that was mitt romney. danny glover, your response? >> poverty in the area is 40%, near 40% over the last 13 years. in venezuela, and all of the region. part of it is associated with the integration. once you get out into the fields, you begin to talk with people who have worked their way and not with cash handouts, but worked their way out of poverty. that is the real story of achievement, not only in venezuela, the other places as well. >> finally, danny, you have spent time with president chavez. were you with him when he voted? how is his health? he has been treated -- >> i saw someone, and i have not seen pictures of president chÁvez over this ordeal in terms of his health and dealing with his
? is it president obama's policiless or go back to the bush administration and their policiless . i have an opinion that said largely president obama's fail add policiless >> going back to the bill clinton premise. no one could have fixed it in four years. >> that is flat out wrong. >> it may be. but that is very effective argument. >> but we have short memories because ronald reagan fixed a worse recession with his policies in '81 and he was fixing that problem and fixed a terrible recession and brought american back to prosperity. that is all my opinion. >> brian: we'll discuss this at 9:20. >> at length. >> brian: what will you wear for the debate tonight? >> stop it. >> steve: coordinating your wardrobe now. no, padded seats like a dog. >> brian: great to surf with. this is a very serious story. americans murdered in lebia, just bumps in the road and president's recent comments about the benghazi terrorist attacks has our next guest outraged. he is a former navy seal. >> is the bro-mance over. is ben affleck having buyer's remorse. >> oh, no. call the hollywood reporter. ♪ ♪ there's the sig
in the obama administration. and peter feaver served on the national security council staff during the george w. bush administration. he's now a professor of political science and public policy at duke university. we thank you both for being with us. peter feaver, to you first. we heard governor romney today criticize the president broadly for not rejecting strongly enough america's influence in the world. yet when it came to specifics, we didn't hear many details. so let me just ask you about a couple of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. what exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about w
. bill: has the obama administration taken a position on this. stkphapb. >> president obam on this dan? >> president obama has never been in favor of marijuana usage or recreational use. but the white house and the justice department have been silent on these ballot initiatives. eric holder was sent a letter urging him to speak out. he has not. we've been trying for a weak to get a comment and we are still waiting. >> it is shocking that attorney general holder, that the director, but most of all that k about this. of the united look, it's about health, it's about safety, it's about the future of our country. >> a big question, if it passes in one or two of these states is will the fed step in and enforce federal drug laws because of course bill it will still be illegal according to the federal government even if it's legal in a couple of these dates. bill: thank you. dan springer is on that story in the state of washington, seattle. patti ann: governor romney's speech on foreign policy is under an hour away. it comes on the heels of a big week for the g.o.p. what do they hope to accom
have been foreclosed on during the bush administration, not the obama administration. i would love to talk about facts, but maybe you're just a little bit disingenuous on your backs. -- on your facts. guest: the word liar is a harsh word. we talked about trying to find commonality here. what i will say about it romney, having been around him a great deal, is a man of great faith and strong family and strong family values. if given the opportunity, i know he will leave the country with honesty and integrity. we might disagree with his policies. i disagree with the president and certainly some of his policies, but i certainly try not to question his motives or goals or why he does what he does. i would hope the voters would hope both sides can return stability to this process, and maybe not to be quite as divided. but fight, argue, in debate, but i hope it is fair at the end of the day and able to move forward as a country. host: republican on the line. supporter of mitt romney. -- robert hagan from ohio and jay hottinger, thank you for joining us. a month not to go. we're in early v
that the obama administration took. >> well, congressman, what is going to get us out of it? do you think that of continued policy of raising taxes on the rich, that's the policy. a continued regulation, under obamacare, and financial reform, continued regulation, higher taxes, and do you think that will pro he dues growth in america's economy? >> no, not at the time. the basic debate here in my view is, is political dysfunction in e should be dealing with the debt and we should be dealing with growth and if you had a balanced approach to dealing with a long-term debt, that included making some reforms in our entitlement systems, and been bringing the pentagon under control and increasing that constantly and bringing some revenues, raising taxes on the high income folks won't make a dent in the economy or their take home pay. those are the balanced approach is the way that a lot of us think it should be done. in the senate now, the gang of ten that's going to try to come one an approach that's balanced. stuart: what about you, congressman, would you accept a balanced approach which had ta

question is, is there any answer from the obama administration. >> reporter: they are tackling this head on. they say this is all about politics. ofa does not accept donations from foreign nat nations or any ineligible individual. and the campaign voluntarily goes above and beyond federal election commitments to insure the integrity of fundraising efforts. they request proof of current and a valid u.s. passport. they say it's in order to comply with all federal election laws. martha,. martha: certainly at order odds with that report. thank you very much. bill: fox news alert right now. because there is new evidence we can report that the white house knew the attack on your consulate in benghazi was the work of terrorists long before admitting it to the american people. fox news learning that a top aid to the secretary of state hillary clinton, patrick kennedy is his name briefed congressional aids the day after the attack, september 12th calling it sophisticated and complex. u.s. ambassador chris stevens among four americans killed in the attack on 9/11. a hearing on what happened in bengha

administration. >> sean: now according to "the new york times," the obama campaign actually thinks that biden will give them the comeback they valle desperately. if they're counting on joe biden to save the day, maybe they're counting on the wrong guy. the author of the new book "here come the black helicopters: u.n. goble governance and loss of freedom," former clinton advisor dick morris. same biden who said he was going to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, 500,000 jobs a month are coming, and 2012 fewer jobs than 2011 fewer than 2010. is that the guy that's going to save the day? >> well, i think they should change the format, sean. instead of biden against ryan, it should be biden against biden. that way i think we'll get a fair exposition. this isn't two men auditioning for the job, even somebody judging as to whether biden deserves re-election. in this case, it's kind of like the spokesman for romney against the spokesman for obama. paul ryan is a uniquely articulate person with a uniquely profound understanding of what's going on in this country. i believe he's going to run rings arou
of american influence, which is a policy that the obama administration has pursued quite consciously, and we're now seeing the effects of it. the examples you give, the determination to withdraw from afghanistan on a fixed timetable that's basically turning the country back over to the taliban. the inability to stop iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons or its continued financing and arming of terrorists in the region and around the world. all of these things put together give a picture of a weak and declining america. i think what governor romney was trying to say today is that we're best able to prevent conflict and protect american interests through a strong american presence, not a weak and declining american presence. >> sean: yeah, i thought that was interesting. if we don't lead, the wrong people will be leading in the world. i think one of the most disgraceful events that have happened, two of them back-to-back, when the president said he couldn't meet with president netanyahu when he was in new york to speak before the united nations. "well, if i speak to him, i have to speak to 10 peop
